Conditional Process Analysis

An Advanced and Accessible Method for Your Nursing Education Scholarship

If you have a question in mind about how teaching and learning are working in your classroom, but you aren’t sure how to approach answering the question, consider conditional process analysis. This regression-based method for analyzing data allows the inclusion of variables that mediate or moderate a teaching-learning process. Conditional process analysis has the potential to produce richer outcomes than simple correlation, regression, or pre- and post-tests can on their own. Read this brief article about how conditional process analysis was used in nursing education. Contact the TIES Academy if you need more information.
